Happy New Year!

Hi everyone and happy new year.

The West Coast tour was a success. Over 12 days we performed 10 live concerts, 2 live radio shows, and drove over 5600 miles. The drives were pretty crushing each day, but we drove through some beautiful landscapes, from the Sangre de Cristo mountains through the Arizona desert, up through Northern California, Southern Oregon, the Snoqualmie Pass, was breathtaking and immense. Here are a few glimpses pictures from the road:

Financially, it could not have happened without the support of Kickstarter so thanks again.

We are just getting back to normal life after tour and the holidays and our mailing the rest of our packages out this week so if you haven't gotten yours yet, expect it late this week or early next week.

Thanks again for your support on behalf of Ocote Soul Sounds,

Martín Perna

We did it!

Thanks to all your generous contributions, we hit our fundraising goal and then some! Over the next few weeks we will be rehearsing heavily, and playing a warm-up gig at the Sahara Lounge in East Austin on 12/2 for our tour which kicks off in Albuquerque on 12/7. You can see the full schedule, times, and ticket info here: During that time we will be assembling our appreciation packages together and will have them to your mailbox in advance of the winter holidays. Thanks again for your generosity and enthusiasm! With love and appreciation, Martín Perna, Adrian Quesada and the rest of Ocote Soul Sounds

Hello from Ocote Soul Sounds.

We're 18 days into our Kickstarter campaign and still have a ways to go. To all of you who have generously pledged your support, we send our deep thanks for your enthusiasm and trust in us and our music. While your contributions have put us well on our way, we're asking for a little bit more support: if you haven't already, please share the link to this campaign with your music loving friends and family.

We just performed at the Fun Fun Fun Festival this past weekend in Austin, TX on a beautiful Friday afternoon for a few thousand people. It was fun and glorious. In addition to an 8 piece band, we were blessed by the presence of singer Tita Lima, visiting the US from her native Brazil who joined us onstage for "Minha Ausencia", created last year during our recording sessions for the latest album "Taurus."

Here's the clip from Youtube, shot from the side of the stage. This is just a taste of what you'll see when we're on tour this December.

Thanks again!

With love,

Martín Perna
